    Martinsburg, WV - $5 1875 Fr. 401 The Peoples NB Ch. # 2144
    A rare type from this state, and from a rare bank as well which issued First Charters and Brown Backs only. This is one of only four examples known from this bank, and the first specimen of any kind to be offered at public sale since we sold an ace from here over eleven years ago. There are a few small edge splits, which PCGS has noted in its Apparent grade, but the note is bright, the overprint vivid, and the paper quality high for the grade. PCGS Apparent Fine 12, a significant West Virginia rarity worthy of a strong bid.
